It's hard to say goodbye

According to the Blogger help section, the maximum number of blogs you can follow is 300. I was sitting at 250 and every time I tried to follow someone new, I would click follow and they wouldn't show up in my blog roll or on my dashboard. I don't know if it's a glitch with blogger or maybe they've set the new max at 250, but I decided it was time to clear out some space for the new guys.

I didn't want to do it, but I stopped following everyone on my list who hadn't had a post in at least a year. Two of the blogs I stopped following hadn't posted in over two years. All total, I let 33 blogs go.

It was tough. I almost cried like that baby.

I always hope the guys (or gals) who stop posting will come back. As a matter of fact, Shellie over at The Middle Child posted yesterday for first time in 7 months. It was nice to see her post and I hope she's back at it. She's a Rockies collector by the way. Drop her a comment and give her a little encouragement.

We all need a little encouragement from time to time.


  1. Blogger has some sort of semi-recent issue with adding blogs and then them not appearing. I follow 300 blogs, so that issue is doubly annoying, because in order to follow a new blog, I have to unfollow a blog, and then add the new blog, only to have the new blog not show up.

    Blogger get your sh-- together!

  2. Dude, I was wondering about that... That explains a number of things... For now I need to unfollow a few old blogs cuz there are a couple of new ones that I need to add...
